Police arrested two youth who whacked Ferrari driver outside Orchard Towers last Saturday
Posted by temasektimes on March 28, 2012
A graphic video showing a group of seven men attacking the uncle who drove a Ferrari F430 Novitec was uploaded to Youtube and went viral in cyberspace with The Temasek Times being the FIRST news site in Singapore to report on the street fight before others followed suit.
The fracas appeared to have arisen because the Ferrari driver refused to give way to pedestrians at a zebra crossing, prompting one youth to hurl vulgarities at him.
The Ferrari driver then got out of the vehicle and challenged the young punk to a fight, not knowing that he would be bashed to a pulp by six others later on. He was observed to be lying motionless on the ground as one man stamped on his head towards the end of the video.
His fate has mystery so far though a Chinese tabloid reported today that his injury is ‘serious’ and he has been admitted to hospital.
According to one netizen who claimed to know the Ferrari driver on mycarforum, he was admitted to hospital by ambulance and still in a coma!
Another netizen posted on CNA forum that his condition is quite ‘serious’:
“The driver condition is quite serious as they whacked him with metal bins and kicks onto his head…….ambulance came and have to put him on stretcher as he in coma……heard he maybe already brain dead or if not, skull also crack with blood clots.”
